Ichiki-clan invited a Buddhist priest named Ryodo from Osaka in the third year of the Eiwa Period (1337) and founded a temple named Kinshoji (Kinsho Temple). In those days, it had a complex of all the regulation seven buildings and was at its peak of prosperity, having 49 branch temples all over Japan. During the period of Haibutsu kishaku, a historic anti-Buddhist movement, Kinsho Temple was abolished. The trace of Kinsho Temple remains in Osato, Ichikikushikino City.
